LED and Screen Indicators
There are three indicators: an LED indicator that faces outside (to let others know you have a camera active), an LED indicator that faces inside, and an on-screen indicator. The outward LED indicator can be switched off if you want the dashboard camera to be even less visible to people outside. Go to Setup > Detect Led > select Off > press OK.

Using a Micro SD Card
The camera doesn’t include internal storage and requires a micro SD card (Class 10+ recommended and 128GB Max supported) to function. A 128GB micro SD card should store over 10 hours of 4K recordings or 16 hours of 1080p recordings. Use a high quality, branded card for maximum reliability. Insert a micro SD card into the camera micro SD card slot. Later, when the camera is powered on, format it (‘Format’ option in Dashboard Camera ‘Setup’) to prepare the card for first use in the dash camera. Formatting will permanently erase any data on the micro SD card. For best performance, format periodically (after backing up any important files). ‘Format Warning’ in ‘Settings’ can be switched on to remind you to do this.
Installation & Powering On/Off
For optimal performance, install the AUKEY DR02 J in the top-center of your windshield facing directly ahead. Lens direction can be adjusted up and down. Use the cable clips to help fix the power cable conveniently and safely like in the picture below.
We are not responsible for any damage caused to or by the air bag due to incorrect placement of the device or its cable.
To power on, insert the car charger into your car’s 12V socket, then connect the included cable to the car charger and to the USB mini-B port of the DR02 J. After powering on each time, the system will start recording automatically. To power off, disconnect the USB mini-B cable.
Note: Use the included cable to ensure optimum performance of AUKEY DR02 J.
- Loop Recording: Recording will begin automatically after powering on with a micro SD card in the device. Each recorded file is up to ten minutes long, with old footage being replaced when micro SD card storage is full.
- Motion Detection Recording: Switch on motion detection in ‘Setup.’ This function will start recording video when the dash camera detects motion in front and stop recording when motion is no longer detected.
- Time-Lapse Recording: Switch on time-lapse recording in ‘Setup.’ This function will capture a picture per second to make a video played at the same number of frames per second as the current recording resolution setting.
- Manual File Backup
Press to back up the current file so that it will not be overwritten. A icon will appear in the top left of the LCD screen to indicate a protected emergency recording is in progress.
- Auto File Backup
Once the G-sensor is activated by a sudden impact, the device will automatically make a recording and protect it from being overwritten. Adjust G-sensor sensitivity in the ‘Setup’ menu.
- Hold down for 3 seconds to take a snapshot while in recording mode
- The snapshot files are located in the AUKEYPHOTO folder on the micro SD card
- The icon will be shown after you take a snapshot. This will not interrupt the video recording.
Turn on/off audio recording by long-pressing when in recording mode (or by adjusting in ‘Setup’ menu). When audio recording is on, in-car audio will be recorded during video recording. Voicing details of possible hazards that may develop, especially when off-camera, may provide useful information. You can even use it to record car license plate numbers that may not be captured on the video.
